In Memoriam

C. Pierce Clark

“Die we must; but die living.” True to the maxim that governed his whole existence, on Sunday, the third of December, 1933, Dr. L Pierce Clark waved a smiling farewell to his patients at the psychoanalytic sanatorium he had organized, the first of its kind in America, where he so ably carried out his psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic conceptions; and a few short hours later, at his home in New York, feeling tired and lying down for a nap, while sleep overtook him he succumbed to a coronary thrombosis.

Born at Ingleside, N. Y., on June 15, 1870, he received his early education at the Naples (N. Y.) Academy, and obtained his medical degree from New York University in 1892. He became attached to the City Hospital staff on Blackwell's Island, and after an interne-ship at the Manhattan State Hospital he then became Assistant Director and neuropathologist at the Connecticut State Hospital, Middletown, and later First Assistant Physician at Craig Colony when it was founded at Sonyea, N. Y. It was here that he began his monumental work with the convulsive disorders which has resulted in voluminous studies on this subject. He was awarded the Stevens Triennial Prize of Columbia University for Original Research, 1903, for his study entitled: “Status Epilepticus: a Clinical and Pathological Study of Epilepsy.” He placed on record (1908) with E. W. Scripture the characteristic speech of epileptics, which he named “the epileptic voice sign.” When he resigned from Craig Colony he spent some time abroad studying with Dr. Hughlings Jackson and Sir William Gowers, after which he entered private practice in New York City.
